LET’S FIND THE ANSWER
In a world with declining fertility rates, due to STD and environmental pollution, the totalitarian, theonomic government of Gilead ascertains cruel rules as the aftermath of a civil war. Here society is based on power-hunger leaders and brutally subjugated women. By law, women in Gilead are forced to work in minimal roles, including some as natal slaves. They are not even allowed to own property or handle money.
SO WHO ARE THOSE HANDMAIDS?
Women in Gilead were often included with adulteresses, single or unmarried mothers, gender traitors, non-Christians, Sons of Jacob, political protesters, and academics. These women are Handmaids.
These home maids are committed to the homes of the ruling elite. The only job of them is to submit them to their respective masters “Commanders” for ritualized rape -“the ceremony” in the presence of their master’s wives, to become impregnated and bear children for them.
